Garnishing Government Benefits

There have been a lot of people lately asking whether or not federal benefits can be garnished for child support/back child support. There was a big article in my local paper, today, about this topic. 65% of these benefits have always been able to be garnished, but starting in March, the entire amount of the monthly benefits can be garnished.

This applies even when the children are adults. The reason this can be done when the kids are adults is because if the absent parent wasn't paying support while the kids were minors, the kids were receiving welfare. Therefore, when money is garnished from the absent parent's government benefits after the kids are grown, the money goes to pay the state back.

Hopefully this helps some of the people wondering about this topic.
